We decided to get married in Devonport after being recommended a quiet beach overlooking Rangetoto island. And it did not disappoint.
The town itself is a fantastic little place with plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from. The town is relatively new, from the 60s, settled after the Auckland bridge was completed. Big, old and colonial houses are scattered around the area. It is obvious this place is from old money as the streets are very clean and the area is filled with galleries.

A must visit if based in Auckland.

we took the half hour ferry across the water. It was a rainy day so chose to take a bus tour around the little town. The 360 degree view from both Victoria peak and views of the volcanoes around Auckland and the city skyline totally 5 star! Other interesting things include views of the naval base, the WW2 tunnels, and hidden guns. The town has nice outdoor bars too..

Great views over the Waitemata harbour. Easy to walk around the point on both the lower and upper level grass paths.
